I still think using a sanitized display name like, 'My Display Name'
becoming 'my-display-name', instead of using a sanitized login name would be
simpler. It would cover the classes and nice-looking URLs wouldn't it? And
it would give users the choice I imagine they think they're getting about
what to reveal in classes and URLs when they choose their display name.
